  • The second you put it on, the powerful gel with breakthrough technology starts to dissolve surface oil on the skin.
  • With oil out of the way the clinically proven acne medicine can then penetrate pores.
  • The medication starts to clear pimples immediately, with maximum strength 2% Salicylic acid.
  • Pimples are reduced in size, swelling and redness, and the formula won’t over-dry your skin.
  • Voila! Pimple looks better. Now get out there and have some fun!

I use this product when I have an extreme case of breakouts. It dissolves the pimples so quickly and it's good for the price! It's small enough to carry with you so that you can apply it throughout the day! It's worth it!

I’ve had this for quite some time now and I use it every now and then but I don’t ever really see any results from it. I’m always disappointed that it doesn’t work. It’s a really good deal price wise and if it works for you, it’s completely worth it but for me, since it didn’t work, it wasn’t worth it.

I honestly loved this product. It only took a little bit and it worked amazingly!! It was so gentle on my skin which is perfect for my sensitive skin. It only takes a couple uses to completely clear up my skin!

When I used to get really bad breakouts as a teen, this spot treatment from Clean & Clear really did the trick for helping reduce my pimples. It can be very drying so it's important to not use too much and only on the area you have a breakout. It didn't burn my skin like other products I tried in the past.

I use this at the end of my skincare routine right before I do my makeup and it works WONDERS. My pimple will be gone by the end of the day when I take my makeup off! Only thing I hate is that it’s tested on animals

This is my go to. I've tried all of the prescription and expensive acne medicines, but this one is one of the best! I don't have breakouts, but I do get the occasional pimples on my face. This stuff works great!

I had heard great things about this product from friends but when I used it on pimples it did not seem to help them at all. I thought that this spot treatment would at least dry them out but that was not the case.

I know you can use this as a spot treatment and just dab it on the pimples, but can you put a thin layer all over your face to prevent new ones from appearing?
